届かぬ手、届かぬ心

This practice really works, though I only keep on three days. I know I made a lot stupid mistakes, but I still can feel my mind is turning to English thinking mode gradually. Moving on! I can make it!

Today I want to talk about the new High Speed Rails system, which starts operation yesterday. Though this service aimed to shorten the time spent on travelling, it also seems bring it also seems to bring more income for railway. If Suzhou to Nanjing’s ticket price rose rising from 67 to 105 is because it halved the travel time, then why did the ticket price of Suzhou to Shanghai also rose the price from 26 to 41? In this distance, the travel time is almost the same as before, but passengers have to pay more than 50% of the former price to buy a ticket.

In my opinion, railway system is one part of infrastructure, and can’t be replaced by any transportation. To promote High-Speed Rails, government cut off most of stopping trains, express, ( which already left a few after running CRH) even CRH which only have been put into use for three years. That increases people’s travel cost inevitably. Not all the people want to spend more money to save time, especially it’s not a small money amount. In my office, I heard my colleagues talked about a new word “to be high-speeded”. I can’t help to recall things happened three years ago, when CRH put into use, we had a similar dispute. I still remember I reposted an article discussed this topic from Nanfang Weekly, which already deleted from its official website. Last time I thought I can afford the price of CRH so I said nothing, but now? Will it get worse afterwards?
